My advice on an initial call with a VCCoincidentally, those topics you hit on your first call could also very well read as a general interview guide, if you change the context slightly.

Don't waste your time, energy, or money taking classes for a major that you don't like or don't see yourself using. You should consider... 2 years 1 week

Unschooling Yourself Part 2: Unlearn What You...[quote=MEvolutionToday]I've always found it ironic that people who have a job and have their carrer on the right track give lessons to younger people about prestige, college, "don't forget who's here for you"... Of course you're in the right position to say this because you have a job. Go tell this... 2 years 1 month
Unschooling Yourself Part 2: Unlearn What You...Hey, you guys should read the other article (Unschool Yourself). I think without that reference, and the ensuing additional readers' commentary, this posting may be taken completely out of context. And, for the record, I HAVE been poor. 2 years 1 month
Petraeus joins KKRhttp://www.militaryfactory.com/military_pay_scale.asp Ironically, this guy is arguably the most qualified and desirable person to have in any high-stress, -risk, and -reward leadership position, yet he stayed in the army, which was only paying him a $224k annual base salary prior to his... 2 years 1 month
